from the Marcus Fabrics website: "Vicki McCarty is a designer, instructor and the owner Calico Patch Designs as well as Calico Patch Quilt Shop, located in Morehead, KY.
Vicki learned to quilt from her grandmother over 40 years ago in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. In 1998, she began teaching quilting classes for the local Community Education, which led to the development of a small quilting community in eastern Kentucky. In 2000, she opened her quilt shop and continued to teach sewing, quilting and embroidery to hundreds of people. Vicki began designing quilts for classes, Shop Hops and quilting retreats, and in 2015 she introduced her quilt patterns nationwide, as her audience for lectures and classes also expanded to quilt shows and guilds across the country.
Vicki's designs have been published in American Quilter, Quilt Sampler, and AQS's OnPoint magazines. Vicki works with Tom, her quilting husband, and their shop is featured as a Top 10 Quilt Shop in Better Homes & Gardens Fall 2018 Quilt Sampler Magazine -- and their project was featured on the front cover!"
